Elektroschutz, or: How to (not) electrocute yourself

November 4, 2010 § 4 Comments

Somebody recently told me that there was a museum of electrical injuries/deaths in Vienna. I guess it must be the Museum of Electropathology, which is now part of the collection of the Technisches Museum Wien. It features wax models of injuries caused by electrical accidents, and very helpful illustrations and posters warning about the immanent danger surrounding us:
